Grateful We're Not Dead is a country, party band that will entertain for food and beer, not necessarily in that order.
We are located in the Ottawa, Canada area and entertain for free at charity events, fund raisers, peace concerts, seniors' residences, nursing homes, private parties, etc. All funds raised are donated to charity. The two main charities we support are Mufindi Orphans Canada and Ottawa Valley Aid for Chernobyl Children. When we perform for a private party, the organizers are required to make a donation to the charity of their choice. All band expenses are paid out of our own pockets so I guess you could say, "We pay to play for you". :)
The youngest member of the band is over 50 and the oldest is just under 70. You might say we're getting a little "long in the tooth"; however, we're having fun and will likely continue at it until we can no longer load the equipment in the truck.

Hey now, everyone!!
Every year for the past 13 years, our bassist David Tauberg, has organized a benefit for Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank called "D-JAM".
For the past several years it's been a show where theCAUSE plays with tons of guests and it's always a fun and productive evening. THIS year's D-Jam will be theCAUSE playing all night long with very special guest, STEVE KIMOCK!!! We will have a few wonderful guest vocalists throughout the night, but it will predominantly be KIMOCK & theCAUSE!.

Hey Dead family! I have really been enjoying all the amazing covers during this months project. Thanks for the inspiration!
We play original music that is inspired, in part, by the Dead's early 70's sound. We also do a yearly Halloween show as the Dead...here's a clip from 2010. If you want to hear our original music (I promise it will be worth your time!) go to themayflies dot com. All of our music is availble to stream on our music page.
Acid Rain Light Show is....well, a light show, up in South-Western British Columbia. The only bands we've worked with that you'd have heard of would be The Country Joe Band and Eric Burden and the Animals. But also several Dead cover bands over our 38 years of existence. You are invited to check us out on Facebook-just search Acid Rain Light Show.
I haven't posted in this thread since 2008! So, I figure a refresher is in order. Here's theCAUSE at our annual Potter County party. A lovely, annual gathering of 150-250 friends where we play music, hang out, eat & drink and be together for 3 days. We've tightened up the band a bit. Here, Patti Spadaro (guitar) and Andrea Pearl (backing vocals) sit in with us. Check out our site: www.theCAUSEjams.com and we hope you'll enjoy (as well as "LIKE") our videos on the Dead Covers Project!!
